Heavenly Falls, The Portland Japanese Garden
A waterfall renovation for the Portland Japanese Gardens.
- Portland, Oregon
- 50ft. Tall Waterfall
- 1997 ← Back to All
Built into a steep slope, the structurally unsound Heavenly Falls presented difficult landscape design and construction challenges. Kurisu had to use special equipment to navigate the terrain, littered with fallen trees, and move the huge boulders. While respecting the original design, Kurisu renovated the garden waterfall to an additional 15-feet high, and completely rebuilt the concrete superstructure. Under contract to complete the job in 60 days, Kurisu finished the renovation ahead of schedule. Learn more about the Portland Japanese Garden at their website.
Through honoring the design and vision of a fellow landscaper before him, Kurisu has not only brought history, insight and beauty back to the Japanese Garden - he has brought back a little piece of heaven on Earth.
